Owner description: West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing. Scuba diving and other outfitters leave directly from the beach so starting your water-based activities is easy and convenient.

West Bay Beach is a safe, beautiful place to snorkel, swim, and walk. The snorkeling is outstanding. Walk down to Infinity Bay and go in from there--you can follow the channels out and the reef and marine life will astound you! We've been on the island 5 times--this last time we saw massive barracudas, trunk fish, a pretty big turtle...on past trips, we've seen rays, flounders, etc. Always something to catch your eye. I'd recommend wearing a scuba skin, only because there are sea lice that can sting (it's irritating more than harmful, but the skin will keep you from getting sunburned as well). Please respect the reef and don't touch/kick it, so that it's there to visit for years to come--and enjoy this amazing natural beauty!!

It is an okay beach just way too many people...we are used to the non crowded fiji beaches that we have been to. But it is okay for a resort beach.

My husband I were here as part of an excursion booked through Celebrity cruises. The first part of our visit was a 1+ hour snorkel through the reef here. It was by far the best snorkeling experience I have had. We swam a couple of miles and saw some incredible fish, and the reef itself is beautiful. The water is very clear, and the beach is great. A do not miss spot in Roatan!
